Some time you'll have to come down here and spend the weekend. When you get here Friday night, I'll have some sharp and other cheeses along with hard Sturgis pretzels. I might even have some triple smoked bologna and maybe if I like you, I'll break out some venison bologna and jerky.

Saturday morning we'll start with scrapple and eggs. I like syrup over the scrapple but you can have whatever you please. By lunch time (we call that dinner) we'll snack on some souse, tripe, and pot pudding before having a pickled heart sammich. For supper (dinner for you flatlanders) I'll get you some pig's stomach.

Sunday morning I'll get some slab bacon, cut it about 1/4" to 3/8" thick. While that is slow cooking, we'll dice some pre boiled taters. I like to use the bacon grease to fry up the home fries. After they are somewhat browned, I'll toss in some diced onions. After everything is well cooked, we'll shred some good aged cheddar and melt it over top of them. Hopefully we will have some left over grease that we can use to fry up the eggs.

Maybe for lunch we'll have some grundsow fried in butter with some more taters and onions.

I'll roll you out to your car for the ride home.

Then go get a blood test on Monday morning and tell me what your numbers are.,........... They may not be pretty but I can guarantee your belly will be satisfied. Exercise during the week !!!!!!!!

When my fire department did steak suppers, the cooks used butter in the kettle along with about 10-15 pounds of shrooms. They would also add some of the raw meat juices, some Montreal seasoning and some of the secret steak marinade.

Maybe it's because they cooked it in a large quantity or the seasonings they added, but for a hundred dinners served, there wasn't very many shrooms left. Some people would eat them by the bowl full.

In addition, women particularly, are prone to over producing cholesterol if they have a low dietary intake - so much so that they often end up with significantly higher blood ldl cholesterol than they had before reducing dietary cholesterol.

Want to help your heart? Eat a low carb diet especially avoid refined carbs/sugars. Avoid trans-fats. Stick with proteins and fats and eat fish. most importantly exercise.

atherosclerosis is not really influenced by dietary cholesterol or sat. fat intake.

Exactly. Thanks, Berlin.

Did you know eggs are almost the perfect food? They contain all 8 essential amino acids (that the body cannot produce).

Cook with olive oil, dump it on salads. It's very good for you.

Refined carbs such as sugar generate free radicals. ... y_of_aging

That said...I do like butter pecan ice cream, apple pie, and anything that contains chocolate. :lol:

I disagree with all of you . I eat bacon and eggs nearly every day. I fry my eggs in bacon fat. The current medical thinking is WRONG. Look at the heart disease, cancer and diabetes stats. There is something very wrong going on. Clogged arteries are caused by ruined oils and fats like what is in processed foods, fast foods, fake butter etc. . There is no saturated fat in a clogged artery! Dont be like the rest of the lemmings falling to their deaths.

Marinate them, careful you don't overdue it with vinegar based marinade. 3 to 6 hours if it has vinegar.

Has anyone tried dry aging beef? I follow Alton Browns recipe for Prime rib, I think it makes a big difference.

My father had heart attacks. Pall Malls, heavy alcoholic. I got a call when I was 16, some nurse in an Ohio hospital. "Your father is passed away". "So?" I don't know where he's buried. Mother, ten years of The Big Casino took her at 52. Kools. My brother had his first heart attack at 45. Wow this is a fun thread :D
HAHAHAHA why is Dan crazy? HAHAHAHA

So my sister-in-law, who is the kindest, nicest lady in the world; always used to tell me; " Ahhhh Ahhhh yew hayave a history of heart disease in yewer family, yower gonna die of a heart attaaaack." HHAHAHAHAHAH

You guys all have homes and nice wives and kids, I'm just a survivor.

I make a decent pizza from scratch, eat good sometimes, not good other times. Last night I had fried Spam with fried cheddar cheese and a vanilla milkshake.
The other night I made a pretty healthy chicken stir-fry. Got some whompin big mushrooms for that, garlic, onions, broccoli, and bok choy.

HHAHAHAHAHA one way or the other. :D

I saw a tip on one of the many cooking shows; about grilling steak. You take your steak and put it in the freezer for about ten minutes before . Then you put it on a cutting board and sprinkle it with some salt and corn starch! Get a thin even coat of corn starch all over the steak. Then put it on a hot grill and cook it. I tried this with London broil and it works great. The corn starch and salt absorbs surface moisture, creating a nice crust on the steak and locking in the juices. The cold from the freezer keeps the steak from over cooking.
Of course, you're supposed to let the meat sit for five minutes to redistribute the juices.
( The term redistribute was not meant to be politically irrelevant to the thread :lol: )
